Though we spend almost 90% of our time indoors, our bodies are still evolutionarily primed to take their cues from natural lighting. Natural lighting affects our mood and energy levels, from the warm hues of the sunset to the bright lights of midday. Research shows we’re ruining our sleep cycles by exposing ourselves to the wrong type of lighting—particularly those blue lights on our phones and tablets.
How can you avoid the pitfalls of indoor lighting? Our circadian lighting solutions mimic natural lighting in the comfort of your home to better regulate your sleep cycles and boost your mood.
Natural lighting changes color temperature—measured in Kelvins–throughout the day. At sunrise and sunset, you’ll notice a warm hue of 3000 to 4000K. Near midday, when the sun is at its brightest, the color temperature shifts to a cooler, bluer hue of 5000 to 6000K. Our team integrates interior lighting that supports your circadian rhythm. It mimics sunlight and adds shifting color temperatures to your living spaces.
Automation makes the most of these tunable fixtures by automatically adjusting them to match sunlight. So without having to lift a finger, your lighting control system knows to have cooler lights in midday and warmer ones when it’s time to settle down at the end of the day.
We recommend incorporating motorized shades as part of a comprehensive circadian lighting solution for greater results. Employ photo sensors that raise shades when sunlight is detected, so you don’t have to rely on artificial light. Vibrant sunlight will filter inside, so you’ll use less energy powering lights when they’re not needed.
